Use the cable car or natural gas bus to reach the top of the mountain. I went there several times, but really good place to go if you have a change to visit to Seoul. I went many towers, Seattle Needle space, Eiffel tower in Paris, Toronto tower...also Tokyo Tower in Japan, Star tower, Shanghai in China. Yes, Seoul tower... More

Bring your walking shoes and hike up the steps next to the old fortress wall area, on the way up you can stop and take some photos at an overlook, the finish with the North Seoul Tower. lots of people (most take the bus or cable cars) I will stop back again just for the hike up and back down,...

Took the cable car up to the N Seoul Tower. I recommend that you buy the "deal" where you get a free popcorn to munch while you admire the view from the top. The view is fantastic and you can see all of Seoul on a clear day. The day that we were there, there was traditional music being played... More

If you have been to Eiffel tower in Paris, then you may feel the long lineup isn't justified. My family waited for over 1 hour to get on the cable car to take us to the tower. When we got there, we realized how short the tower was. It was decorate with lights to make it more attractive, but it's... More

Situated on Top of Namsan hill; Can walk from Hohyeon station (which closer to cable car station than Myeongdong). A ride on top costs 8500 KRW or 8 USD Dollar; No seat in the riding cube have to stand crammed til the end of route. Long queue 60 minutes wait for ticket bought. the ride took about 15 minutes. then... More

i stayed at the Hilton at the bottom of the hill from the tower and decided to walk through the park and up to the tower. This took about an hour and was some great exercise amid a typical business trip of sitting and more sitting. The views of the city were great during the walk, but nothing compared to... More

I realize that K-dramas gave me illogical expectations for this place. I blame Do Min Joon. I liked the exercise of the trek up the hill towards the cable car station. The cable car experience (my first) was like standing in the MRT during rush hour, though the view below is beautiful, so find a good spot near the glass.... More

I did not take the cable car as long queues during long public holidays. However, there is a cool " box lift "to take you up and have nice view over city. And the local food shop serves good local beef soup.

Best part of this place at evening times, they do laser lights on tower. Looks awesome view. & laser show at nights. Cable car is one good thing. Lift to the top of the tower with some food and shopping in middle.

The views were ok but the windows were dirty, so even if you wanted to get a good shot of the city, you couldn't! I'm comparing it to Tokyo tower so maybe that's my problem! :) if you've never been to a city tower like this then I think you should go but if you have, I think you'll be... More
